|No part of Anko should be thrown away!
Anko fish is an anglerfish in English. The anglerfish meat, served hot
with vegetables in a pot, is Japanese gourmet cuisine in winter. You are
able to eat most of this fish's parts. They are called "7 tools",
which is the liver, the fins, the ovary, the meats, the stomach, the gills
and the skin. You shouldn't even throw away the bones. You can get good
soup stock from them. It is well known in Japan that you don't throw away
any parts of the Anko fish.
By the way, do you know our free re-sharpening system? We re-sharpen Watanabe
knives any time and every time for free. (However, we will charge for shipping.)
If our home customers use this service about once a year, they could use
a Watanabe knife for more than 40 years. For example, the 300mm blade of
a big Gyuto knife will become a 120mm blade of a petite knife after several
decades of re-sharpening many times. The old knife is still active in the
kitchen! Our knives are so practical! When people use and enjoy our knives
as a friend in their kitchen, I get a lot of pleasure.
Normally, the relationship between the knife makers and buyers finishes
once the product has been sold. But at Watanabe Blade this is not the case.
We start our relationship with buyers after selling. It is said that a
Watanabe knife is like Anko. There is nothing of the knife you should throw
